Prior to 3yrs ago, I would always find somewhere else to be other than spending Eid with my Family. I would be in school mostly while I was in Uni and after Uni I worked on Most Eid’s it was this Escape for me.The family bond shared during Eid was evasive in my Family. #Eid2020
My mum had to dim her Eid celebrations bcos she didn’t want 2be that single Mum who did more than abled Married or Family Men. I have no idea who said or made that idea valid in her head. Also she was mostly tired of my brothers and myself Fighting whenever we were in the house.
I think the Turn around for me was in 2017, I was pregnant with my second Son and my mum asked me to come home For Eid. I almost said no but I was weary, I was going through a lot so I needed any kind of comfort that I could get... #EidAtHome #eidmubarak2020
While at home I felt so much ease, I forgot all the sadness and doubts I had within me and I felt very much at home and it was a beautiful feeling. I enjoyed my Brothers company so much. This was Home. #eidmubarak2020 #EidAtHome
So after the Eid’il Fitr it was the big Sallah and I kinda looked forward to it as well. Then my mum also decided that life was too short to keep caring about what people would think of her during Sallah, She killed Two rams that year. Sallah became a thing for all of us.
